Ahhh 3. The magic number in terms of chocolate combination, musketeers, and any variation of The Sugarbabes. Also the magic number of toddlers needed to produce the maximum amount of mess when baking.
I occasionally babysit my 2 year old nephew which along with my 2 toddlers makes this meme very valid…
As I always say, my kids are happiest when making a mess so I went in for the triple whammy- 3 kids, 3 varieties of chocolate and 3 times the mess.
Luckily these are 3 x as delicious as shop bought cookies which makes the mess worth it. Literally the best chocolate cookie recipe if gooey and rich cookies are your thing.
You will need 2 x baking trays lined with baking paper.
- 250g plain flour
- 50g cocoa powder
- 200g soft brown sugar
- 120g caster sugar
- 1 egg and 2 yolks
- 220g melted butter
- Teaspoon baking powder
- 200g chopped chocolate (mixture of milk, plain and white)
Preheat the oven to 180°C Gas Mark 4
Now I’d love to give you a technical breakdown of the best way to make this cookie dough but let’s get real- we threw everything together and stirred. Most of the ingredients made it into the bowl.
Soooo combine the ingredients and mix to form a firm dough.
Roll into balls (you should get up to 20) and place well spaced on the baking trays.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they have spread out and are turning crispy on the edges.
Allow to cool on the trays before lifting off.
